is that i spent 25 years working for the federal government in a lot of agencies. those agencies comprise 40% of our discretionary budget. the misapplication of resources going on in our federal government should be stopped. they should be listening to the constituents. thank you very much. >> thank you. i am running for the united states senate because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with america is extreme politics and extreme wealth. my opponent to represent the status quo. charlie summer's represents extreme politics and angus king represents extreme wealth. what i am offering the state of maine is someone who is not beholden to outside interests. we need a new generation of leadership. i hope to have your support. >> my name is andrew ian dodge. i am in this race because i believe the issues of liberty, freedom, and individual rights are being trampled on left and right, whether it is a resting -- arresting a farmer for selling raw milk. i have a touch of ethnicity about me and i am the youngest in the race. i hope we ha
areas of the government. >> senator, you talked about the fiscal cliff that is looming at the end of december. we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, and we also have, like you were just talking about the trillion sequester cuts. all these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything as is? or do you think, do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week? >> yeah, i think that the best way to talk about the tax rates is they're what we've had for 10 years. businesses have made their plans predicated on a tax rate. i don't think we should increase the tax rates on anybody. i don't care if you're rich, middle class or poor. we shouldn't divide up people. we should divide people into two sectors. private sector, public sector. i don't want to grow the public sector, i want to grow the private sector. so that means means, leaving as much money in the private sector as possible. i don't want to tax anybody any more to
have a bunch of issues. and what that does is create uncertainty. if the government can go and do what they want regardless of what the lot is -- what the law expert, and the government says coppola -- what the lot is, and the government says, and going to do it and go ahead and sue me. that is as much of the problem as the volume we have seen. the cost of the regulation is inconsistent with the underlying law that was passed by congress, or never even contemplated by congress. co2 is a toxic substance. i cannot imagine anyone who voted for the clean air act who would have suggested that was something that was covered under the definition when they passed that bill. the overriding issue is government run amok because the president is incapable of getting any of the stuff through the congress. you have a president who has decided that we are going to do this on our own. and the media, as we all know, it's certainly not going to go out and hammer him for doing these things. they agree with him for the ones to do. they let him get away with it. it is up to conservatives to try to make the
at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at these duplicative programs. we have got to move away from baseline budget to zero-based budget. >> the gao had a study that counted 33 agencies that are doing the same thing. we need to streamline these agencies. seven are focused on businesses and trade. let's streamline them. we have attacked medicare fraud and abuse. we need to continue to do that, in all government agencies. i spent years going into numerous fortune 500 countries -- companies looking for these inefficiencies. i plan using my government to find this week. >> can either of you give me any numbers? the department of energy? >> close to $85 billion. you are looking at a guy, never been in politics before, and i found three wasteful programs in the government. the combined savings of -- if every single member of the house was going and looking for wasteful programs, thin
down and said the government called up the national guard. i am going home. he apologizes. he wanted to be here with you. [applause] again, thanks for the hospitality. it is good to be represented -- in a state that will be represented by tim kane. what they add. -- what a guy. that has more integrity than most people have in their entire bodies. i'm a big tom kaine fan. also of tom pariello. where are you? thank you. talk about a stand up back. good to see. thank you for all the help you have been in this campaign. before it started, i want to make a public service announcement. in virginia, you have what is called absentee in person voting. if you work long hours, you're probably qualified to vote early. next week through the third, you can go to the lot -- to your local registrar and vote. if you have any questions, we have folks in the back who are wearing the obama buttons and you are all wearing obama buttons. they can tell you exactly how to do it. i would like to win this thing earlier than later. so go out there. [applause] the president had his third and final debate with g
lot did not take in end. under the law, if you did not file a complaint with the government within six months of the first discriminatory paycheck she got decades before, if she did not file a complaint, whether she knew about it or not, within six months of the first is the mandatory paycheck, -- first discriminatory paycheck, that employer was home free. it could pay her less every paycheck from then on. open and explicitly. there was nothing she could do about it except leave the job. that is what the supreme court said congress meant when it passed these laws prohibiting pay discrimination. it was a vigorous dissent from justice and ruth bader ginsberg that this made no sense whatsoever. she was joined by three other justices. first of all, who knowsafter six months that you pay is less -- second, if you know and you have enough of evidence, are you going to file a complaint within six months of the paycheck? are you going to figure, ok,i will prove my work and not be labeled as a troublemaker. it basically took that decision in what have some called a technicality and took away wo
it is the job of the government, and then they went off on the next public lands thing. then, you have been up so much time in this, that leads to one, two, three less town hall people. i did it a couple of times, as many times i felt i could do it without completely blow in the format. with guns, we went off on something. they started talking about single mothers. >> single mothers and marriage, yes. >> i will say that the format that has evolved is better today than back in the day when it was much more strict. we were told u.s. the question, no follow-up, two minutes, one minute, and i was told to interrupt it they did not. there was a red light and a buzzer. there were restrictions. today, they are given more time to have a conversation, and you learn more that way. come to the debate of every intention of ignoring the rules they have agreed to, there is very little the moderator can do. when i did the sit down debate with dick cheney and john edwards, who i would ask different questions of today -- [laughter] there was a light. they could see the light. they knew when they were over time.
